You know it’s gonna be a bad day when……..

You get up at 4:00 AM to get ready for work and you slip and fall down your stairs. Yep, that’s what I did this morning. My alarm went off, I sat up in bed, threw on my robe, slipped into my slippers and headed down the hall to the stairs….I got down about 4 steps and then slipped….I guess that’s why they are called slippers…….and down I went.
I didn’t go ass over tea kettle, which is a good thing, but I landed on my back and smacked my head and hit my arm off something. Thankfully my steps are covered in carpet…..but it’s not as plush on my arse as it feels on my feet!
I’m pretty stiff right now, but I think I will survive.
So enough whining!!!!
My little sister Courtney celebrated her 27th birthday on Monday. My mom surprised me by having her and her boyfriend Jay meet us for lunch on Sunday. That was a great surprise. We live a ways away from each other so we don’t see each other as often as I would like. Courtney’s boyfriend Jay celebrated his birthday on the 28th of March. Like always, my birthday cards for them are gonna be late….they are in the mail right now, but they obviously didn’t make it to them on time.

Courtney is a teacher, so I used the teacher set made by Hanna Stamps to create this card.
I stamped a bunch of apples and coloured them green and red with the Copics. I drew a chalk board and coloured it with the Copics. I then sponged above and below the chalk board to make it look like walls. I stamped the clock on the wall. The teacher Hanna was stamped and coloured with Copics and then cut out and adhered to the card.
I stamped the table from the Stampin’ Up! set Scene in a garden, to be the teachers’ desk. I then coloured the globe and placed it on the table. I also coloured the ruler and put it in the teachers hand and coloured the pencil and put it on the table with the globe.
I was quite pleased the way this card turned out.. I hope you like it too!

Jay is a Real Estate agent so I went that route with his card. I wheeled the houses using the Neighbourhood wheel by Stampin’ Up!.I coloured them with the Copics. I then stamped Anthony by Hanna Stamps and coloured him with the Copics and cut him out. I also stamped, coloured and cut out the brief case. Jay’s card was a quite a bit simpler than Courtney’s card, but I hope he likes it just the same.

Well..I think I might go get some ibuprofen and go lay down and rest my weary bones!
Chow for now, Jacqui

The cards look great - can't wait to see them for real! Hope you're less achy soon.
